Yes, Rich, you express it beautifully. I think we all undergo a long process of this sort when James begins to revolutionise our way of seeing Christianity. If this helps at all, I think Richard Rohr has a way of expressing our dilemma that can also help: “The binary, dualistic mind cannot deal with contradictions, paradox, or mystery, all of which are at the heart of religion. Sadly, a large percentage of religious people become and remain quite rigid thinkers because their religion taught them that to be faithful, obedient, and stalwart in the ways of God, they had to seek some ideal “order” instead of growing in their capacity for love. These are not bad people; they simply never learned much about living inside of paradox and mystery as the very nature of faith”.
